Building department suspect’s hearing continued

Former building department employee Brigid Irish’s June 17 court appearance was continued to 8:45 a.m., July 8. The district attorney’s office did not object to the continuance. Irish was arrested in May and charged with four counts of theft, one count of attempting to influence a public servant, 12 counts of forgery and 915 counts of embezzlement of public property. The charges stem from the misappropriation of more than $500,000 in funds from the Grand County Building Department over the course of 12 years.
